Colin Mills, compiler of the Hortus Camdenensis, died in late November 2012 after a short illness. As he always considered the Hortus his legacy, it is his family's intention to keep the site running in perpetuity. It will not, however, be updated in the near future.

Sinningia speciosa ‘Baron Reige’

Presumably a cultivar of Sinningia speciosa (Lodd.) Hiern. I have found no reference to this plant.  It is not listed in the Gesneriad Register-Sinningia or the Appendix.
